Therapy professionals and students working or training in Ireland. The Register
provides support for its members to enable them to give the very best of
attention to their patients. The RPTI is Irelands only independant, voluntary, non-profit, self regulating body

subjects that have special interest to Physical Therapists. All courses run by
the RPTI are provided to members on a "no profit" basis. With the
onset of regulation of therapies the Register will assist its members to have
